Binge Watch: Shotgun Wedding Cast

The new film Shotgun Wedding drops on Prime Video on Friday. In honor of the film, this week’s binge features a previous film from some of the primary cast members for those that want to keep the party going.

Jennifer Lopez—Second Act (2018)
: It’s not often that films catch me by surprise, but this one did. I remember seeing the trailer and dismissing the film. But my wife wanted to see it, so I tagged along. What I saw was a comedy with heart and a story I wasn’t expecting. It ended up being one of the better comedies of this kind I saw that year.

Josh Duhamel—Win A Date with Tad Hamilton (2004)
: This little comedy is almost 20 years old, focusing on a small-town girl (Kate Bosworth) who wins a date with her favorite movie star, Tad Hamilton (Duhamel). This, of course, leads her right to the friend and co-worker who’s been in love with her all along (Topher Grace). Is this a great film? Is this a deep film? No, but it’s fun.

Cheech Marin—From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)
: Marin has had a long and varied career, appearing in a number of different projects in staring, supporting or cameo roles. For this one, I reached back a bit to this action film from Director Robert Rodriquez and featuring a script from Quentin Tarantino. Tarantino is also a main role here, alongside George Clooney and Salma Hayek. It’s a fun film with a cool look and some good action sequences.

Jennifer Coolidge—American Pie (1999)
Coolidge is hot right now, especially for her work on White Lotus. But she’s also had a long and varied career in film. For this exercise, I went with a classic that first put her on the map—American Pie. Her iconic role at Stifler’s Mom is one of the most enduring things from that movie, a comedy I saw when I was in college.

D’Arcy Carden—Ride the Eagle (2021)
I love Carden, who has been brilliant on the small screen in key roles in series like The Good Place and Barry. But she’s also great in this little film starring Jake Johnson as a man who inherits a cabin from his estranged mother (Susan Sarandon). Carden and Johnson have a solid back-and-forth here in an interesting little film.
